Abstract:
This paper presents a new topology for a wire-grid antenna array which operates at 60 GHz. The array consists of ten λ/2 dipole radiators connected via non-radiating connectors. Both radiators and connectors are placed on top of narrow silicon walls. The antenna is fed with a coplanar microstrip lines placed at the other side of the wafer and is connected with its feeding transmission lines using through-silicon-vias. The antenna is optimized for two cases: using high- and low-resistivity silicon substrates. The former has better radiation characteristics while the later is more compatible with the driving electronic circuits. The antenna has high directivity, reasonable bandwidth and high polarization purity.
